We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters Degrees in Environmental Sciences investigate the workings of the planet Earth and the ways in which it supports life. Programmes specialise in a range of subjects, from Soil Science and Climate Change to Marine Sciences and Glaciology.
Courses can be taught or research-based, with various MSc, MRes and other qualifications available. Many programmes also include exciting fieldwork components - this is one discipline where the chance to 'explore new areas' isn't just a metaphor.
Environmental Science Masters degrees can open the door to a range of career opportunities, depending on your specialism.
The skills of Earth and environmental scientists are becoming increasingly important as different groups attempt to understand and respond to the effects of climate change. You could find yourself working for a commercial company attempting to manage its environmental impact or for a charity or scientific research centre.
Opportunities also exist to work in other applied fields. Soil scientists and climatologists help support sustainable agriculture and agribusiness. Meanwhile, professional meteorologists can make vital contributions to astronomy and space exploration.
All subjects within this discipline can also lead to valuable and fulfilling careers in research and academia - with the world as your laboratory and classroom.
